your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. >> eliot: welcome back. i'm joined by professor reich of u.c. berkeley, former labor secretary under president clinton and author of "beyond outrage." we're going to talk fiscal cliff in a minute. before we get there this hp thing has me going nuts! it is wall street at its worst. they paid $11 billion then realized it is only worth a bit over $2 billion. you have every major law firm, accounting firm, investment bank involved. are they that blind and dumb still? can you make sense out of this? >> eliot not only can i not make sense of it but one thing does stand out. you've got goldman sachs you've got citigroup kpmg, deloitte, every major law firm, what are they getting paid for? and they're not getting paid a small amount of money. they're getting paid a large amo
close to. that the pentagon's got to make a contribution and if there is anything on healthcare, it's gotta be about reforming it, bringing the costs down, not cutting benefits. >> eliot: let's drill down a couple of pieces of this. what do you think the underlying ratio should be between cost cutting and revenue generation. last summer it was 10 to 1 in terms of cutting costs to revenue. thankfully the deal didn't get done. should it be one-to-one? where would you like to see this happen? >> you know, i actually don't know that number because i think the question is i think we need about a trillion and a half from revenues and the revenues have to come, as i mentioned the way president obama was campaigning. and then the pentagon's gotta make a contribution and we've already cut a trillion and a half dollars on domestic discretionary. we'll have to cut more to get a deal. but with the ratio is, i haven't been that close to what the numbers are. >> eliot: one of the issues lurking out there is the debt ceiling and
perhaps in the first term, the president was overrun with economic issues and healthcare. climate change is one where many people are saying mr. president it is time to stand up and lead. do you think he will do so? >> yes. i think we allowed it to be framed whether it was the carbon tax discussion, whether it was anything dealing with the public land. allowed it to be framed that this is hurting the economy. well, it's not. it is an economic issue. but dealing with the question of climate change which i think is the most bipartisan and the biggest elephant in the political room for this generation and future generations, i think it is a great legacy issue. and i think it needs to be confronted. and alternative energy, renewables, all of those a part of the package but as a political issue climate change can't be ignored. and the president -- i think president obama has an opportunity here to begin -- not only a discussion but begin some administrative action, independent of congress to begin to deal with climate change
? he said the healthcare. we have to improve healthcare and the whole issue is if you get the universal healthcare, then you've avoided this medicaid medicare, you know, whatever and it is more efficient because you're not sending money -- spending money for profit. you're doing it for the v.a. and for everybody. >> bill: i forget, doris igor, jump in here, too i forget the exact number but the congressional budget office proved that -- you're right. single payer would be even more efficient but we're not going to go there because we didn't. but obama care would save hundreds of millions -- hundreds of billions of dollars in delivery of healthcare costs by making it more efficient and bringing more people into the system and therefore have more capacity to deliver. >> you lower the rate of growth which is the key to lowering cost and the irony is you have boehner and cantor saying let's put obama care on the table in these negotiations when this is the law that reduces costs and reduces the deficit. >> bill: we
such as the president's healthcare reform act, which i happen to like and think is constitutional, but chief justice roberts who whose vote says its constitutional. >> it was to be decided by the people and we just had an election about that. >> eliot: that is the difference between the presidential process, either with the congress or executive and the judiciary which has to make sure what we do is within these boundaries. let's take something like affirmative action and put it in that context. what is the constitutional issue when it comes to affirmative action. >> the tricky question is what those words equal protection really mean. do they surely prohibit the kind of apartheid policies that were condemned in brown versus board of education. those policies were designed to really stigmatize and put down to treat a second class of the blacks who had before that experienced generations of slavery and subordination. the same thing if they are used to up a racially outcome by bringing folks who have been previously excluded historically from the table, and bringing them to the table. >> now just so i
issue that we think of as important getting healthcare system that works and we could afford, getting reform on wall street that doesn't -- that works. doesn't make our economy vulnerable to the gambles of people in our society. finding a way to address the fundamental debt crisis that will burden our children and our children's children and our children's children's children. if you don't fundamentally change the way these elections are financed, you're going to keep getting candidates who are in favor of their funders. of course! >> cenk: there was just a poll done where 67% of americans said politicians need to do something about climate change. they need to take legislative action. only 25% said no. don't do anything. 67% to 25%. if we had a functioning democracy, there would be immediate action on that. but in reality there is not a peep. so i've been covering politics for about 17 years now. the reason that i'm passionate about campaign finance reform is it is the rosetta stone of politics. if you wan
is in the affordable care act we have a mandate that the employer is supposed to pay healthcare coverage or pay the difference. that's just a start. i don't think walmart should in effect be the largest recipient of public assistance in the country. in state after state after state walmart employees represent the largest group of medicaid recipients and largest group of food stamp recipients. we shouldn't have to bear that burden. we should put it on walmart. >> cenk: walmart, as congressman grayson is saying, winds up being the biggest taker of government subsidies in some of these programs. but the six heirs had a have more money than 40% of the country combined. that is amazing. congressman grayson. they came up with this idea. if you increase wages to $25,000 for the average walmart worker, they say $21,000 but we think it's lower but give them the benefit of the doubt right? that would increase costs to us of $20 per year for the consumer. $20 per year does not seem like a lot for the average customers. here is the result. it would lift 1.5 million out of poverty, create $100,000 new jobs
